Ekstein Backs Kaizer Chiefs To Lift the Nedbank Cu

A first-half goal from Eric Mathoho was enough to lead them to a 1-0 victory at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium over Baroka FC.
 
“I want to firstly thank my family and God for everything, and I made a promise on Thursday that I’m going to play well and promised the fans we’re going to do well and go to the next round,” Ekstein told SuperSport after the game.
 
Ekstein, who admitted during the week of his dissatisfaction with his progress ever since promotion to the first-team in 2014, is pleased with the help from all concerned in this regard.
 
“I only have two to three goals if I’m not mistaken, and have no assist. But I’m happy with the help from the first team players, legends and coach they have been given me,” he said.
 
“We owe it to our fans. We have to do well for our team and supporters because it’s been two seasons without anything so this is our chance (to win it).
 
”Yes, we are confident (of winning the cup) and we’re going to win this cup,” he added.

For me Shabba was man of the match. He helped Zulu settle down the lef of the park and Ekstein in the middle. Ekstein plays in patches and really needs to work on his shooting as he constantly finds himself in good scoring positions

He was just running around with poor decision making and end product as always! Then he gets a complement!? Tjonnaweee... Mahlasela must recover fast before new manager arrives. Vincent Pule should come already.

Only if Komphela changes tactics and play the tactics played against Baroka yesterday. After +-20 games of playing the same exact tactics of 7 defensive infield players and 3 attacking, finally yesterday Komphela started with 4 attacking players. And all players responded well. I told someone recently, the reason Ekstein wasn't playing well is because you can't play Ekstein in without another attacking midfield. The reason chiefs drew so many games was cause of the defensive structure of Komphela

Unfortunately, all the remaining teams are far much better than fau. Ekstien must desist from making too much promises, fau faithfools will hold him to his words and he won't like it.
